From gum benzoin, either alone or mixed with olibanum or styrax, thrown on hot cinders or a heated shovel.
The styrax benzon, a native of the Indian islands, yields the resin called benzoin.
It was obtained from the stem of styrax officinalis, a native of Greece and the Levant.
The styrax is found here in great abundance, a tree not large but straight in its growth.
Laden with perfume was the air, of jessamine, of styrax, of roses heavy in the breathless evening glow.
This process may be used in cleaning the balsam or styrax from old slides.
styrax is a remedy of value and is commonly employed as an ointment in the strength of one part to two or three parts of lard.
Take a slide, centre it, and place a small amount of styrax on the centre.
Invert the prepared cover, and gently place it upon the styrax.
It exudes from the styrax benzoin by wounding the tree, and drying, becomes a hard gum-resin.
